Labiaplasty – maybe it is time?

A labiaplasty is a routine surgery that removes excess tissue from the labia. It’s also known as a Labiaplasty, Labial Reduction Surgery, Labia Reduction Surgery, or Vulvar Surgery. This procedure helps women eliminate the feelings of self-consciousness and discomfort caused by elongated or asymmetrical vaginal lips. Aging and childbirth can cause unwanted changes in this intimate and sensitive area. Other women endure the physical and emotional distress of enlarged labia, or labial hypertrophy, because of genetics. Dr. Julian Rowe, owner of The Doc Spa and Board certified OB/GYN has performed hundreds of procedures of this type in his career. For more than 20 years he has been performing this vaginal rejuvenation procedure to help women in New Mexico and beyond feel their best.

The labia are the folds of tissue around that protect the reproductive and urinary systems. There are two sets of labia, the labia majora (outer lips) and the labia minora (inner lips). Labia perform the essential function of guarding the delicate tissues of the clitoris, the urinary orifice, and the vagina. There is no such thing as “normal” labia: since every woman’s body is unique, so is the size and shape of the labia. The labia minora are often asymmetrical and can vary in length, and it’s perfectly natural that they protrude slightly from the labia majora. However, in certain cases, this can interfere with everyday activities. Over-developed labia can be a source of irritation, cause hygiene issues, and result in pain during intimacy. Labial hypertrophy can be caused by various factors, but a labiaplasty offers women a permanent way to eliminate discomfort, attain a desired aesthetic, and confidence. OUR PATIENTS LOVE what some of our many happy patients say about their e BENEFITS A labiaplasty is a transformative treatment that allows women to live confidently and comfortably. Elongated labia often become pinched or twisted, and become irritated by friction when sitting, cycling, running, sex, or wearing tight clothing or lingerie. They can also prevent women from enjoying swimwear for fear of becoming exposed. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, nearly 10,000 labiaplasties are performed every year. Studies have found that the procedure has a satisfaction rate of over 90%. With that many women enjoying their results, there’s no reason to continue living with labia that limit your ability to enjoy everything life has to offer. After a labiaplasty, women have: • Added physical comfort and heightened self-confidence in the bedroom • Better sexual pleasure and increased sensitivity • Decreased chances of developing infections • Ability to wear tight clothing, swimsuits, and a wider range of lingerie.


Labiaplasty has given many women the opportunity to prevail over pain and regain a sense of comfort and confidence. Dr. Rowe will be able to determine if labiaplasty is right for your unique case following an examination and discussion at your personal consultation. Ideal patients for a labiaplasty are: • Healthy individuals over the age of 18 • Concerned about the physical discomfort caused by an enlarged labia • Experiencing pain when sitting, working out, or during intimacy • Looking to change their intimate aesthetics • Self-conscious about the size of the labia • Do not have bladder or a vaginal infection at the time of surgery.
